Current Issues at the
John F. Ring
National Labor Relations Board
We are pleased to announce that Chairman Ring
will be our guest speaker at our upcoming luncheon on Tuesday, May
21st. He will discuss interesting, important and contentious
issues pending before the Board. For example the Board’s request
for public comment on how the 2014 changes in NLRB Election Rules
are working. Another is its announced Rulemaking proceeding on the
issue of what constitutes joint employment. A third is the Board’s
public briefing on an employer’s right to limit its employees’
personal use of the employer’s email system.
John F. Ring was confirmed as a NLRB Member
on April 11, 2018 and designated as Chairman the next day by
President Trump.Prior to his appointment to the
NLRB, Chairman Ring was a partner in the Washington, D.C. office
of the Morgan, Lewis & Bockius law firm. During his 30 years with
the firm he represented client interests in all aspects of
labor law, including collective bargaining, workforce
restructuring, employee benefits, labor-management related
counseling and litigation. Most recently, he served as co-chair of
the firm’s labor/management practice in the D.C. office. Chairman
Ring received his J.D. and B.A. from Catholic University of
America. Please join us for what
promises to be a fascinating and authoritative review of critical
national labor relations issues now before the Board.

The DC LERA is on the
of tidal changes in national labor policies. Battles between
powerful political forces in Washington will determine the
future of work for decades to come. We are a non-partisan
forum in Washington where these conflicting ideas and
We sponsor a series of monthly
luncheons on crucial economic, legal, and social issues in
employer–employee relations. Thanks to our location, DC LERA
draws support from the Washington policy community, with
members and speakers from government, universities, unions,
think tanks, and policy advocate organizations. Our luncheon
programs offer great opportunities for labor relations
professionals, union leaders, policy specialists, scholars,
and students to express their views, enrich their knowledge
and expand their networks.
A special dimension of DC
LERA’s program is international labor relations. We are
honored and privileged that representatives of Washington’s
diplomatic delegations are active participants in our Chapter.
They learn, but they also give back. Attachés and counselors
give us inside views of labor relations in Asia and Europe.
